Proposal's three parts equals happiness

Mike and I had known each other since January 1991.

We met when he came to my workplace seeking employment. My first impression was that he was arrogant and uppity.

I guess I changed my mind at some point during the next five years.

I was never a big fan of Valentine's Day in the past and I had expressed my feelings about the day to Mike numerous times over the years.

On Feb. 14, 1996, Mike came over for dinner and I had the TV on for its noise factor as I usually did, Mike asked if we could turn it off while we ate and proceeded to turn it off.

After dinner Mike handed me what I assumed was a Valentine's Day card which indicated that it was Part 1 of 3, the card was wonderful in essence indicating that he wanted us to grow old together.

After reading the card I was instructed to turn the TV back on and turn to the local public broadcasting channel in our area. Not understanding why I did so, we waited until following ad appeared on the TV screen:

To: Colleen Williams

From: Mike Miller

I've waited so long to feel the kind of love I feel for you, and it must be the real thing because everything in me tells me it is, over and over.

All I want is to love you for the rest of my life. Part 2 of 3.

As I finish reading the message for the third time I look over at Mike who is on one knee. He opens a red rose shaped ring box and pops the question. Hence we have gotten to Part 3 of 3

After some time having realized what happened I said yes. We were married Aug. 17, 1996, at Knott's Berry Farm in California and started our new life together in Nevada on Aug. 30, 1996.
